When Dublin Drag Diva, Davina Devine, was asked how she would spend the prize if she were to win big, she said:

"If I hit the jackpot, my first stop would be a world tour in style - no more economy class for me! I'd visit every country on my bucket list and turn my travel dreams into reality, like my own version of 'Eat, Pray, Love', exploring the world, one delicious meal and experience at a time."
